You mean, work as in...?

Couldn't get 1.8.0.902 to compile, 1.8.1 though did but didn't bring any cure for the xrandr issue at least.

How did you install x11-base/xorg-server-1.8.1?

Personal overlay, modified 1.8.0 ebuild (removed two patches that went upstream).

If you're curious, look here for the ebuild.

Just switched to the new xorg, removed hal use flag and all is working great (I have to keep hal running at least for battery widget)
Finally I also have alt+Fkey VT switch back (lost with xorg-server 1.7 when started using precompiled ati-drivers) and, thanks to Odysseus, the touchpad now is working again in the right way.

Odysseus wrote:

To resolve the Alps touchpad issue was simple. I removed all vestiges of any input drivers from my xorg.conf and deleted my /etc/hal/fdi/policy/11-x11-synaptics file. Then I opened konsole and started experimenting with synclient. I ran synclient -l to see what options were active. I experimented turning on and off different synclient options until I got it working the way I wanted. Then I edited my /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-synaptics.conf file.

All I needed to do was add the following lines:
Code:
   Option "TapButton1" "1"
   Option "VertEdgeScroll" "1"
   Option "HorizEdgeScroll" "1"
   Option "CircularScrolling" "1"


So that my /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-synaptics.conf file now looks like this:
Code:
Section "InputClass"
   Identifier "touchpad catchall"
   MatchIsTouchpad "on"
   MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
   Driver "synaptics"
   Option "TapButton1" "1"
   Option "VertEdgeScroll" "1"
   Option "HorizEdgeScroll" "1"
   Option "CircularScrolling" "1"
EndSection



I'm using x11-drivers/ati-drivers-10.4-r1 and x11-base/xorg-server-1.8.1-r1 from gentoo-quebec overlay

Thanks to all

Which version of udev is required to build 1.8.x? I tried 151-r3 and upgraded to 154, though couldn't build xorg-server 1.8.0 or 1.8.1-r1:

might do the trick - try to re-emerge it afterwards

Since around the xorg-server upgrade, I have been having trouble where some times KDE would freeze on login for several seconds until KDE detected an issue and disabled compositing. Through the course of troubleshooting, I downgraded to x11-apps/xinit-1.2.0-r3, x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.7 and x11-base/xorg-server-1.7.7. This did not fix the issue, so I tried downgrading to x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-190.53-r1 and so far, so good. I have been heavily leaning torward the nvidia drivers as being the cause of the issue. If this turns out to be the case (i.e. I go a few weeks without issues), what are the oldest x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers I can use with x11-base/xorg-server-1.8.1?

Let me know if you get it working with 1.7.x xog-servers. That is one feature from Ubuntu that I would like to have on Gentoo.

Those with KDE can enable it in the Keyboard Settings in System Settings - I do not know what to add to xorg.conf to get it working.

Well, thanks. Though, the problem was with cruft in my system left after emergency manual udev installation. File included was from /local/ and it was quite old :oops:

UPD: Sigh. I found quite annoying bug (?) in 1.8.1, if I connect removable device, Xorg just crashes...
UPD2: That was, again, my fault. I cleaned up all udev cruft and everything seems to work fine now

I know this is an ancient post but I had a rough time finding the answer to this on any G-Forum. Had to resort to crawling the Ubuntu forums.. gasp! :o
In any case xorg 1.5 (?) and up (I'm on 1.10) doesn't do zap via ctrl + alt + backspace anymore, too dangerous for n00bz like me. And with various prescribed methods for restoring it (HAL/xorg.conf/xinitrc), your mileage may vary. It is now..
Code:

ALT+SysRq+K

which on my system is right alt + print screen + k. Now, if y'all dead people who aren't reading this thread anymore will excuse me I'm going to merrily zap my xserver and log out..
